The hoteliers of the 36 Vitalpina Hotels in South Tyrol know the natural beauty and landscape around their hotels like the backs of their hands. That’s why their recreational options are so original, and why their zest for life is so authentic. They swear by engaging in physical activity in the mountain air and recharging one’s batteries in the great outdoors whenever possible. They are hoteliers, body and soul – but also mountaineers, ski instructors, fitness trainers, herbalists and chefs ... and they have turned passion into profession: “We are mountains!” That goes for all four seasons, of course.

The Power of Herbs as Mood Enhancers
Would you rather stay snuggled up inside, where it’s nice and warm? Then go ahead, and indulge in one of the soothing treatments offered by the Vitalpina Hotels. The calming, nourishing and fragrant treatments of the Vitalpina spas pay homage to the power of Mother Nature in South Tyrol. Locally produced skin-care products with mountain herbs, quartz stone, hay, whey, arnica, juniper and apple put your senses in touch with the delicate vibrations of nature in a subtle, sensual and authentic way. A dip in the hay bed, a full-body brush scrub with juniper extract, a massage with mountain-herb essences or warm “herb slippers” (Kräuter-Patschl) on your feet loosen tension, relax the musculature, soothe the body and mind, and turn thoughts positive.
Who knows? Maybe you'll allow yourself to be inspired by the Vitalpina hotelier families' enthusiasm for moderate, physically active enjoyment of nature in the fresh air. Even from the sauna, the vista of powder-white mountains exerts an irresistible pull towards the outdoors, in order to enjoy physical activity and overcome the natural elements. In the evening, guests dine on delicious regional specialties prepared in a wholesome way, with seasonal ingredients ... food for the soul!
